There was a phase when every girl worth her mascara was hung up on coral lip colour. It was peppy, shiny and came with a lot of personality. At least, that’s what most thought. It’s no doubt a wonderfully rich and appealing shade that adds the right amount of pop to your look.
But honestly speaking, they are pretty overrated these days. The ‘bring-me-some-colour’ effect is soon wearing off as more and more girls are opting for bolder colours like purple, red and blue. Coral is still the first choice when it comes to dusky women as mild oranges and gold hues look delicious against an olive skin. And if you really must go bold, you should try coppers, maroons, berry and plum shades than corals. Despite their promising effect on the skin. It’s because this shade of orange is so 2013 that you’d not find any top model or Bollywood diva doing it at parties and promotions.
You must be wondering how the hottest colour of last season become so outdated this year, right? It’s because orange can bring out your blemishes like no other colour. Perhaps that’s why it requires expert blending and merging of foundations and skin concealers. It’s best to conceal that redness and blotches with matt finish concealer before doing coral as the wrong shade on your skin can completely undo your make-up.
Give your skin some glow by dabbing gloss-based powder all over your face. If you’re planning to highlight your cheekbones, go for with either tinted browns or dark peaches as they look the best with fiery orange lips. When reds, pinks and even blues can enhance your complexion and make you look like a million bucks, why not opt for those ‘in’ colours than these tried and tested shade?
Coral gained worldwide popularity as it didn’t look too girly, as opposed to a pink or red. It was also more ‘young’ and ‘vibrant’, but all these factors couldn’t make it a classy shade. Reds and pinks have been around for ages now and never seem to go out of fashion, thanks to their diva-like appeal and elegant appearance. Moreover, not many middle-aged women have been bold enough to try orange as they feel it’s too ‘teen-centric’. And that’s exactly why fashion-watchers have started calling coral one of the most overrated colours of this year.
Do you like to rock this shade or agree with us when we say it should now be old news? Woe would rather a sport a plum new shade than stick to a color so overdone that even cosmetic giants have started naming it differently…
